Her only American tribute was when Bebe Buell named her spawn by Steven Tyler after her.
As for the Oscar, Liv and Let Liv.
You lot must be too young to remember Simone Signoret and Sophia Loren won the best actress Oscars back in 1959 and 1961.
Liv certainly wouldnt win for any of her American movies ..... but yes she and Ingrid should have tied for Autumn Sonata in 1978.
Jane Fonda won in 1978...I never get that one. I guess it was connected to her Vietnam activism but Coming Home is a boring performance. I was shocked to read Jill Clayburgh lost that year too. I always thought she won.
r5, IB was born in Stockholm.
As for 'Autumn Sonata': Ullmann is great, as usual, but her performance isn't wildly different from 'Face to Face' or 'Scenes from a Marriage', for which she should have won. (Yes, I realize the latter is a tv mini-series which was cut to a theatrical release in the US).
Ingrid Bergman has arguably the more challenging part in 'Autumn Sonata'; she has to convey maternal love, indifference, derision, regret, embarrassment... sometimes all in one take. And she pulls it off.
It's a more quiet yet nuanced performance than Ullmann's, and therefore Bergman deserved her nomination.
Wow, r13, that r5 post just flew right over your little head, didn't it?
I never miss a Liv Ullmann musical.
She's also a terrific director as anyone who saw the production of STREETCAR with Cate Blanchett will attest.
And before anyone gets too rhapsodic about Blanchett, I think Ullman deserves credit for guiding Blanchett's superb performance as the latter's previous NYC stage appearance in NYC in HEDDA GABLER was underwhelming, to put it nicely. But that whole production was horrid.
"Autmn Sonata" is one of Bergman's greatest performances. Liv is fine but Ingrid is incredible.
What about a Tony- or not?!
I agree, R15. I credit Liv Ullman with getting out of Blanchett a performance that was more from the gut than anything Blanchett had done before.
I saw Blanchett in UNCLE VANYA last year and I didn't understand the hype about her performance. She was not nearly as luminous and captivating as she was in STREETCAR.
I eat shit.
Yes OP. At the very least she should have more nominations. OK so Scenes from a Marriage was hampered by the TV rule, but she was drop dead amazing in Sonata, every bit the equal of Ingrid, really better.
Speaking of Ingrid I need to get that TV movie she did where she played the Israeli prime minister. That along with Sonata, her final performances, have been said to be the best.
The role of Mama in I Remember Mama seems tailor made for her.
Yet she flopped on Broadway.
What went wrong?
If you heard her sing, R21, you'd know why it flopped (she was thankfully dubbed in LOST HORIZON). Plus Richard Rogers was way, way past his prime at that point. The show itself was terrible.
There are worst singers that have appeared on Broadway.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
